In The Elixir of Love, Donizetti’s bel canto comedy, the love story of Adina and Nemorino is reimagined during World War II in the Italian countryside. Nemorino is hopelessly in love with the beautiful Adina, who only has eyes for another. That is, until a slippery salesman comes to town hawking a love potion – or is it just wine? This charming romance is good to the last drop.
